What better way, then, to equip myself for the study of the earth's age, than to spend nine days around the Grand Canyon (six of them in it) with ICR geologist, physicists, and biologists.
Unfortunately, neither Christian conservative Old Testament scholars nor Christian scientists are in universal agreement.
This topic covers a broad spectrum of issues so I am going to try and narrow the focus of the discussion.
The earth has many layers of sediments thousands of feet thick.
How could one year-long catastrophe account for all this sediment? The Grand Canyon is almost three hundred miles long, a mile deep, and four to twelve miles across.
We examined many evidences for rapid formation of rock layers, which is essential to the young-earth model.
